Suicide terrorism is the most aggressive form of terrorism, pursuing coercion even at the expense of losing support among terrorists ' own community. What distinguishes a suicide terrorist is that the attacker does not expect to survive a mission and often employs a method of attack that requires the attacker 's death in order to succeed. In essence, a suicide terrorist kills others at the same time that he kills himself. Usually these tactics are used for a demonstrative purposes or to targeted assassinations. In most cases though, they target to kill a large number of people.
Some are willing to commit the most heinous crimes such as kidnapping or assassination or worse. However, one of the tactics I find the most demented are the suicide attacks; yes, attackers are even willing to lose their lives in order to supposedly cleanse. While not all are alive still, there have been a handful of masterminds behind the origin of al-Qaeda; Abu Ubaidah al-Banshiri, the current leader, Abdullah Yusuf Azzam and of course, the man of the hour, Osama bin Laden. While Osama was the
The main goal of a terrorist is to instill terror by deliberately killing innocent people. For example, the devastating act of 9/11 was an act of terrorism where thousands of innocent people were killed while going about their daily activities. In these situations, the priority of the terrorist is to intentionally harm civilians with no means of harming the people that are directly against their views such as government or military individuals. The severity of these actions cause extreme pain and suffering for so many families and, as a result, I believe that in some cases torture is permissible if it can prevent a tragedy like this from happening again.

Those crimes are but not limited to: homicide, burglary, or an attempt to burn important papers that can be used against someone if they fall into the wrong hands. In the mind of an arsonist they think that by burning the place down that all of the tangible evidence or the identity of the victim will be unsalvageable or hard to identify once the fire is put out. Although, this might be true indeed fires will burn whatever it can it will burn some evidence of the crime; however guns, knives and bullets will survive a fire to certain degree. With vehicular fires victims have been located in the passenger and cargo area. Detectives are taught to investigate and scrutinize every detail so checking the passenger and trunk are may prove to be very vital in the helping of solving the

The Boston Bombing occurred during the Boston Marathon in 2013 .

Despite all of the recent tragedies, the events of September 11, 2001 will remain a memory in the hearts of all people who watched, in disbelief and fear, the collapse of the World Trade Center. On that fateful day, the terrorists believed they had won the battle by carrying out catastrophic devastation. However, their actions would unite America and create a movement of patriotism.
Clappers lace their blood with explosives and then clap to detonate, killing as many people as possible. By researching radicalization my opinion that radicalization is wrong, did not change, I learned why it happens, and was able to connect it to my life. Initially when I first started researching radicalization, I only thought that radicalization was for Islamic terrorists. Now after reading the news article, The Radicalization of White Americans, by German Lopez, I now understand radicalization applies to so much more. It applies to white supremacist groups, right wing extremist groups, and other groups that have ideas that are not mainstream.
As we learned in week 1, the Boston Marathon Bombers set of two bombs killing several people and injuring even more. They also killed an MIT Police Officer.

Chechnya is a country that has become somewhat known for Islamic Terrorism, and it could be speculated that the brother may have taken some interest in terrorism while visiting his
It makes the whole world suffer and eventually the entire human race will be destroyed. In the words of the protagonist of the story, Shute himself explained the purpose of his writing if a couple of hundred million people all decide that their national honor requires them to drop combat bombs upon their neighbor, well, there’s not much we can do about it. (telegraph.co.uk/culture/books/6718768/Nevil-Shute) Destruction of society and universe can occur fairly easily if it has to do with stupid actions of those around us. Also, our national honor can get rid those we care for. Destruction of society can also take place if we do not care for our national honor, and if it is being taken advantage of.
